He said “I’ll protect you like you are the crown jewels” yet Said he’s feeling sorrier for me the more I behave badly I can bet Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment Jealousy is more than a word now I understand I know you can stay a girl by holding a boy’s hand Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment I’ve got my life of complication here to sort out I’ll take myself to an east coast city and walk about Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken I can’t see further than my own nose at the moment

Phil and Don What went wrong? I see no reason to go on I’ll take the slack from you Give all my love to you I’d break my back for you It’s not enough, I know Phil and Don The saddest song It breaks my heart to sing along. I’ll take the slack from you Give all my love to you I’d break my back for you It’s not enough, I know Phil and Don I’ll say so long So very nearly made me strong You very nearly made me

I’ve never had a Roman holiday But I won’t hold it against you The look on your face when she told you she loved you Was it priceless? Now it seems you’re well connected You have your own flock of sheep I don’t think they are lost and I don’t think they are discreet I light a scented candle in my room I’ll hold a good thought for you You were hopeful you said things would be ok But they’re doom and gloom If I were good at hating I’d hate you If I were good at loving I’d fall I’d keep the company of a kid obsessed and I’d tell them all I knew you well for a short spell I knew you well for a short spell Please don’t tell

about

More than 50.000 copies sold to this moment are good prove of CAMERA OBSCURA's ascending career. The first single out from the new album, "Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken", is a country soul track with a fantastic ending part where Tracyanne manages to sing up to six choruses! As for the exclusive B-sides, "Phil and Don" (a tribute to the EVERLY BROTHERS?) is a country duet with great guitar work and some harmonica thrown in for good luck. And "Roman holiday" has a bossanova beat and a vibraphone arrangement that give it the perfect stylish touch for a song too good to be just a B-side. If these are their B-sides, imagine how good is the album!

The band recorded the album track in Sweden with the help of producer Jari Haapalainen (Ed Harcourt, THE CONCRETES) and a great team of people with whom they've worked in the country's best studios: some of the string musicians have recently toured with Brian Wilson or Arthur Lee & LOVE; the song was recorded in the same studios where Neneh Cherry or Robyn have previously recorded, and it was mixed at the same place used by THE MAGIC NUMBERS or Per Gessle from ROXETTE fame. Among the contributors to these songs we find Victoria Bergsman from THE CONCRETES, singer-songwriter Brita Persson or members of Swedish pop bands such as THE TOURETTES, LAAKSO or SPEEDMARKET AVENUE.
